What to Bring

We don't need to remind you to bring an open mind, energy or a positive attitude, but here are a few more things you will need for CI:

  1. GWID, NetID, and password.
  2. Your completed GW 101 information, mock class schedules, and any other academic information or questions you may have in preparation for CI.
  3. A laptop (if you own one!) for course registration on Day 2 of June CI sessions (students attending CI 7 (August 23-25) will register for classes remotely in June- you will be prompted to select a June remote registration date when signing up for CI 7). If you are attending in June, don't forget to bring copies of your proposed schedules, too!
  4. Completed Immunization Form (which must be received by Student Health by August 1st). 
  5. Upload your photo to GWorld, so you can pick up your student ID at CI Check-In! If you don't do it ahead of time, then be sure to bring two forms of identification with you to CI.
  6. Documentation of any AP or IB scores or grades from previous institutions, as well as a copy of your unofficial transcript.
  7. Comfortable clothing and shoes (CI is casual, but we've got a lot in store for you, so make sure you have some comfortable clothes for your CI experience).
  8. Sunscreen and sunglasses.
  9. Rain jacket and/or umbrella (note: D.C. summers tend to be hot and humid with brief rain showers and rooms for sessions can get chilly!)
  10. Spending money (all meals are included for students, but we have many excursions into the city during CI).
  11. If you're attending our June sessions, we’ll provide the sheets and pillows for your stay on campus, but don’t forget your toiletries and a blanket! You’ll pick up your room key when you check in with us in the morning of Day 1 and return your key when you check out on Day 2.
  12. If you're attending our August or January sessions, you will be moving into your academic year housing assignment prior to CI, so don’t forget your own blankets and pillows.
